“By bolter shell, flamer burst and melta blast, the mutant, the heretic and the traitor alike are cleansed of their sin of existence.
So has it been for five millennia, so shall it be unto the end of time.”
- Words of Devotion, Verses IV-V, Chapter X, Volume LII
Team Apoka is proud to announce the release of its first deluxe expansion “Defenders of the Faith”!
A black threat is spreading across the Traxis sector and its two adjacent most important sectors. Navida Prime is at the center
of this massive conflict. A breach in the veil, high in the sky, is pouring daemons and entities without names. But at the very
moment when all seems lost, light came from above. The light of the God-emperor.
War of Faith
With Defenders of the Faith, it is your duty to lead the purest of the armies of the Emperor. The expansion introduces two
new warlords, a lot of units, events and supports and a new mechanic for the Ecclesiarchy. As the Adepta Sororitas, you can call
upon your unshakeable faith to withstand any opposition and make sure the Emperor’s Will prevails. Along with this new holy

build as a full new faction in an all-Ecclesiarchy deck concept.
The deluxe expansion has been an incredible task for all Team Apoka. It’s the result of half a year of intensive work. We would
like to thank everyone for their support. From the chinese playtest group to Drake, Jenny, Forrester & all the other players from
the Skype group. From R. Twoshields to the Dark Omen Club. From Ichorid001 to the dozens of players who order packs each
month. We can’t name you all, so: Thank you all.
And a very special thanks to Eu8L1ch for his incredible participation to this deluxe: The final steps of the conception saw countless
meetings, often of more than five hours, to discuss, tune and test the cards. His expertise is an invaluable contribution to this expansion.
Table Top Simulator
Another great news for this release. All Apoka cards are now available on Table Top Simulator, and so will be the Sisters of Battle.
A big thank you to Ichorid001, Erwin and all who made this possible.
Enjoy the smell of a burnt mutant and the feeling of playing with real cards there:
In His Very Name
We hope you’ll enjoy this expansion. If you don’t have your Faith tokens yet, now is the time!
Cleanse the battlefields of the Traxis Sector in his name.
Long live Conquest!
